Name: Crosby Colapinto
Hometown: San Clemente, California
Best Known For: His world-class rail-game, adventure seeking nature synonymous with The Search, and a cheeky grin forever plastered on his face.
Crosby, or better known as “Crozz”, has been part of the Rip Curl Crew for the past 12 years, first slapping a sticker on his board when he was eight-years-old… adding another three years comes as no surprise. From charging waves of consequence in Puerto Escondido to Mexico to Indonesia to Pipeline, as well as demonstrating his impressive bag of tricks when it comes to airs when on his home turf, in Lowers.
“Crosby was MVP for the 2020/21 Hawaiian season after spending two months in Indonesia surfing perfect waves” said Ryan Fletcher, Rip Curl International Team Manager, attesting to Crosby’s hard work leading him to claim a spot at Pipeline, Off The Wall and Sunset – the true Hawaiian testing grounds.
“So I just re-signed with Rip Curl for another three years and I’m really excited because I’ve been with Rip Curl since I was eight-years-old, they’re like a family to me. It’s been great getting to know everyone in the company a lot better, I can’t wait for what the future has for me.”
What’s next for Crosby?
“Hopefully qualify for the WSL World Championship Tour within the next three years! I’m really excited for what the future has in store for me and for Rip Curl.”
Welcome to the Crew, again, Crosby, Alyssa and Erin.
We look forward to seeing you charge and one day come to the Rip Curl Pro at Bells Beach where you will always find a home.
